We’ve all grown up with the frightening iconic clown, Ronald McDonald. With his bright red hair, yellow suit and big red shoes, he is easily recognizable no matter where you are. Don’t worry, he hasn’t changed too much, but he did get a much needed makeover.
From the design table of Ann Hould-Ward, Ron is now decked out in cargo pants, an updated blazer and a slicked hairdo that, let’s be honest … could still use some work. Let’s be really honest, it could all still use some help.
Is this make-over in response to Taco Bell announcing its latest breakfast menu takeover? Micky Ds says no. In fact, it’s been in the works for almost two years. But hey, I guess it’s ‘good timing’.
And of course, here’s what the Twitterverse is saying about it.
If you don't retweet this, #RonaldMcDonald will eat you in your sleep tonight.

#RonaldMcDonald is wearing a red blazer now, because the poor economy's forcing him to sell real estate on the side.

I can't find a single tweet supportive of the new #RonaldMcDonald look. The words "creepy" and "mid-life crisis dad" are being used a lot.
